This private, sunny, bluff side estate is the picture of restored balance. The long entry porch penetrates the living space like a spine, locking together the public spaces and pool into a Chinese puzzle. Like a ‘cloud lift’, the upsweep of the roofline frees up the forced perspectives of redwood beams and light boxes. A focal hearth winged with plantings centers the step-down living room, as well as the open but formal dining room. A fully equipped kitchen, breakfast area, family room with fireplace, covered terrace and pool complete the space. In a separate wing: an interior garden connects the master bedroom with bath, media room and two guest suites with baths. The service wing contains powder room, gym/housekeeping quarters with bath, and two-car garage. The exterior can accommodate tranquil relaxation or entertaining, with multiple hardscapes, lawns, fountain and mature trees. Beyond the pool are up-canyon and city views.
